59 years old -- and challenging myself to meet life head on.


Proud to be a Courageous Copper Couger!! Gonna Rock the next 12 Weeks!!

Update on 9-19-12:

Over the past several months as I have found the energy and desire to work on what I can control and to try not to fret about what I cannot. Exercise and eating better have helped me lose my first twenty pounds -- I am so looking forward to the next several months to see what I can accomplish!

Posted in July 2012:

Life's rollercoaster has been in the downhill mode the last two years, and I haven't responded in many positive ways. Since 2009 I gained back 35 lbs of the 40 I had lost the two years before.

And -- feeling old, and out of shape and over the hill. Oh, a whole list of "woe is me".

But on my 59th birthday, in June 2012, I decided that what I could do was lose one pound per week for the next 52 weeks. Not two, not 1-1/2, but one pound a week. Would that not be an excellent goal??

I also decided to work on just one habit every two weeks. I started with water -- just drink a glass -- when I wake up, before every meal, and before bedtime. The second habit was getting out of bed, putting on my shoes and going for a walk.

So far so good . . .
